In the current climate of economic FREAKOUT, everyone is looking for ways to cut back, stretch their dollar a little further, maybe get creative with classic low-budget foods like ramen and iceberg lettuce. (Believe me, I’ve been there. When we first moved to Santa Barbara and had negative dollar figures in our financial picture, I once came home to find my husband eating salad topped with rice.) Couple the ever-more-frightening global economy with our addiction to holiday spending and you’ve got one heck of a Merry Christmas!
Thankfully, today there are amazing innovators out there, looking for ways to cut costs while still indulging in the things we love. Los Angeles’ Moe Berg found wildly affordable bacon at Whole Foods, of all places. I’m talking like two cents per slice of fresh-cooked, high quality bacon, people. Go check out his detailed (and hilarious) instructions here. If you live in a city with a Whole Foods, I beg you to go test this method, before the deli manager catches on and raises the price!
